    Tough Times Training Program at NY Combat Sambo

    New York Combat Sambo wants to help those grapplers out there
    who are having tough times!




    At NY Combat Sambo alone, several students have been laid off or lost jobs due to this tough economy.

    NY Combat Sambo has initiated a "Tough Times Training" program. Here is how it works:

    Monday through Friday at NY Combat Sambo, we have a 5-6PM open mat where you can come in and train, work out, work with others who show up, ask me for tips, etc.

    NY Combat Sambo will now open that time slot up for free to anyone who can document that they were laid off or have lost a job in the last 6 months.

    People training at NYCS in the "Tough Times Training" program will be able to use the 5-6pm open mat time free of charge! In addition, any student enrolled in our "Tough Times Training" Program can attend one of our afternoon classes per week for free. We will also provide you a sambo jacket at wholesale cost ($50). You can stay enrolled in the free program for 6 months from the date you sign up or until you secure another job (whichever comes first).

    If you qualify or are interested in this program, please call NY Combat Sambo
    at 718-728-8054, or come by the gym at 225 West 36th Street, 6th floor.

    We all hope things will get better with this economy soon, but in the mean time, training should keep rolling on!!


    Sincerely,

    Stephen Koepfer

    This puts "No Child Left Behind" to shame. Kudos to NYCS.

    I have already heard from other clubs who want to offer similar programs. I encourage this!!! Let's keep people training! Who knows, we just may develop a network of programs like this!

    Nice job Steve! Let this be a lesson to those instructors out there that are only thinking about the almighty dollar and losing focus of why they got involved in MAs in the first place. I doubt many schools in South Florida or even nationwide would do something that like that.

    Thanks on behalf of those who need it Steve. You're a good man for doing this.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.
